WITH SO MANY BREEDS OF DOG TO CHOOSE FROM IT IS IMPORTANT TO MATCH UP THE NEEDS OF THE DOG TO THE LIFESTYLE OF THE OWNER. ASK YOURSELF, CAN YOU PROVIDE THE MUCH NEEDED EXERCISE AND STIMULATION FOR A MALAMUTE TO HAVE A GOOD HOME?

WHILST ALASKAN MALAMUTES CAN BE FANTASTIC FAMILY COMPANIONS, THEY DO STILL NEED A FAMILY THAT ENJOYS AN ACTIVE LIFESTYLE. IF YOUR HOBBY IS CYCLING OR WALKING THEN A MALAMUTE MAY BE THE RIGHT BREED FOR YOU. THEY ARE NOT SUITED TO HOUSEHOLDS WITH LITTLE SPACE AND OWNERS WITH LONG WORKING HOURS.

MENTAL STIMULATION IS AS IMPORTANT FOR MALAMUTES AS  PHYSICAL EXERCISE. A PUPPY WILL NEED A FAMILY THAT IS WILLING TO TRAIN IT AND NOT GIVE UP AT THE FIRST SIGN OF DIFFICULTY OR STUBBORNNESS. PUPPY OBEDIENCE CLASSES ARE ESSENTIAL TO SOCIALISE YOUR MALAMUTE WITH OTHER DOGS AND TO HELP ESTABLISH CLEAR BOUNDARIES IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP.

THE SEARCH FOR A GOOD BREEDER CAN SOMETIMES BE CONFUSING. EACH BREEDER HAS THEIR OWN INTERPRETATION OF WHAT A GOOD MALAMUTE SHOULD BE AND WILL THEREFORE BREED PUPPIES TO FOLLOW THIS INTERPRETATION. OUR ADVICE IS TO LOOK FOR A KENNEL THAT HAS PUT AS MUCH THOUGHT INTO THEIR BREEDING AS POSSIBLE. A GOOD BREEDER SHOULD BE AIMING TO STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN HEALTH, WORKING ETHIC AND CONFORMATION. ALL BREEDING STOCK SHOULD HAVE A SOUND TEMPERAMENT. NONE OF THESE FACTORS SHOULD BE FORGONE IN FAVOUR OF AESTHETIC PREFERENCES. GOOD BREEDERS ARE HAPPY TO ANSWERS QUESTIONS AND WILL BE PLEASED THAT THEIR PROSPECTIVE PUPPY OWNERS ARE DOING RESEARCH. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR 'QUESTIONS TO ASK A BREEDER' CHECKLIST TO GIVE YOU SOME POINTERS.
